And with a 15:1 student to faculty ratio, you’ll learn in small classes allowing you to build lasting relationships with your professors.
From student organizations to art exhibits to athletic events, there’s something for every student at Urbana. Here, you’re able to take advantage of the diversity on campus and expand your horizons.
You’re one of a kind. Shouldn’t your education be too?
Additionally, a Division II athletic program and three intercollegiate club sports await at Urbana. So if you’re interested in wearing a Blue Knights uniform or just cheering from afar, you’ll feel like a part of the team.
It’s a great place and an exciting opportunity – can we count you in?
Ready. Set. Go.
A diverse, well-rounded freshman class is beneficial to you and us. At UU, we pride ourselves on admitting exceptional individuals of all types. We believe every applicant is unique and has something special to bring to our University. Our job is to help you hone your talents and discover your potential. Because when you succeed, we all do.
You can submit your online application at any time – just know your application isn’t considered complete until we’ve received your ACT/SAT scores and transcripts.
If you’ve got all the information at your fingertips, the Urbana application can be completed in less than 2 hours. If you don’t, you can still start your application and save your information, allowing you to complete your application in stages. Just remember: saving your application doesn’t mean you’ve submitted it!
Once you submit your application, you’ll receive an email confirmation letter mailed to the address you provided stating we’ve received your information.
After you’ve submitted your ACT/SAT scores and transcripts, an Admissions Counselor will follow up with you to talk through any remaining requirements and paperwork.
Our application includes questions about:
- Basic demographic and citizenship information
- Educational history
- Academic program and activities of interest
- Activities you completed in high school
- ACT/SAT scores must be sent directly from the testing agency
- The Urbana University ACT code = 033460
- The Urbana University SAT code = 1847
- The Admissions Office will accept ACT or SAT test scores if they are included on your high school transcript
- If you took college courses while in high school, official transcripts must be sent from the college and/or secondary school, not your high school.
- If you’ve completed any coursework at a school outside of the United States, official transcripts must be sent from that institution. Foreign language documents will also need to be translated into English by the issuing institution, an authorized translator or a teacher of the language.
- For transcripts to be considered official, they must be sent directly from each institution to Urbana University.
- Transcripts can be sent electronically through Parchment Exchange or mailed to:
579 College Way
Urbana, OH 43078
Along with the documentation mentioned above, International students will also need to submit:
- Bank statement demonstrating available funds equal to 1 year of tuition, room and board, fees and personal expenses (in U.S. dollars)
- Immunization records (translated into English)
- Copy of current passport
- Personal statement
- Two letters of recommendation from professors and/or employers
- English language proficiency scores
Make college more affordable
We know tuition plays a big part in your decision, so we’ll work closely with you to identify your options. Education can be affordable – and when you partner with us you’ll discover what’s available to put a private education within your budget.
Completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the first step toward getting federal aid, which includes grants, loans and work-study funds.
Once your FAFSA has been processed, you’ll receive an Expected Family Contribution (EFC), which is used to figure out how much aid you can get.
After you complete your application for admission, you can then apply for financial aid and scholarships.
Use the Urbana University code “003133” on your FAFSA submission to ensure we receive your scores.
Before starting your FAFSA, equip yourself with the information you’ll need. This includes:
- Your Federal Student Aid (FSA) ID
- Your Social Security number
- Your driver’s license number
- You (and/or your parents’) tax records, untaxed income and asset records
- The Urbana University school code (003133)
We can only receive your FAFSA information if you have applied to Urbana and identified Urbana University as an institution on your FAFSA application.

Become a Blue Knight!
Confirm your acceptance and intent to attend Urbana by completing the forms in your Acceptance Packet, which includes your Admission and Housing deposit. Doing this in advance will guarantee your spot in the upcoming freshman class.
Once we’ve received your forms and deposit, your admissions counselor will be in touch to help you schedule an orientation and walk you through any remaining questions.
Learn more about the University and meet with current students and faculty during one of our Accepted Student Visit Days. It’s also a great opportunity to have one-on-one time with your admissions counselor to answer questions and chat about your future at Urbana.
At this time, we’re only able to accept Admission deposit payments in cash or by check. We cannot accept credit cards as a form of payment.
Prep for your first year
Orientation is the perfect time for you and your family to get acquainted with key services and opportunities at Urbana.
Our goal is to provide you with the information you’ll need to make well-informed choices and decisions, ensuring your transition into the Urbana community is a smooth one.
During your session, you’ll have the opportunity to meet your soon-to-be classmates, faculty and staff. Specific time will also be set aside for you to sit down with your academic advisor and to register for your first classes.
If you’re planning to attend Urbana in the fall, there are typically multiple sessions and orientation dates for you to choose from. Sign up early to get your preferred session and date!
If you’ve already signed up for orientation but need to change the session or date, please contact your admissions counselor to reschedule.
Come to Orientation Prepared
Prior to orientation, you will have already received your acceptance packet containing the various forms you need to complete. Please fill out those forms and bring them with you. Although you can mail them to us later, but turning them in during orientation ensures that we have all the information needed for you to begin classes in the fall.
You’ll need to submit your final official transcripts from your high school or college to attend orientation.
